Mr. Frank C. Hare, In his work for

DETERMINE AGE Of POULTRY
While There Is No Positive Rule to Go
By There Aro Certain Condi
tions to Guess By.
Strictly speaking, there Is no posi
tive test for the age of poultry. How
ever, n close guess can be made un
der certain conditions. Tor Instance,
the sizo of spurs generally distin
guishes n two-year-old bird; yet the
writer hns hnd young birds develop
spurs that would have done eredit
to older birds. On the other hand,
lie has had two-year-old birds with
spurs that were as short and rounded
ns those of u cockerel. To some ex
tent the texture of the leg Is a guide,
and so Is the delicacy and freshness
of the skin of the face nnd comb. Yet
there will be occasional hens that have
n youthful appearance to a remarkable
Probably a better test is the skin
of the body, that of the older fowl
being coarser and drier in appearance.
A pullet will show rose-colored veins
on the surface of tho skin under the
wings. Long silky hnirs will also bo
grown there; but after the pullet has
become a year old these hairs and
veins will disappear and the skin will
grow white and vclnless.
It Is more difficult to determine tho
ago of water fowls than It Is of other
COOPS FOR FATTENING HENS
Object Is to Reduce Exercise and In
crease Consumption of Fat-Producing
Fattening rations aro not compli
cated or need not bo to bring fair re
sults. Tho prlnclplo of fattening Is
to reduce the exercise nnd Increase
the consumption of fat-producing
food. If tho farmer possesses n num
ber of small shed-roof brood coops
sich as aro used for sitting hens with
chicks, these coops will be fine for fat
tening hens. Kiich coop will accomino
date about five hens without crowding
and they will hnvo little opportunity
for lighting or scratching. Feed them
three times each day from n pan con
taining n sloppy mixture of sour milk
nnd corn meal and allow tho hens to
cat all they will consume. After each
feeding remove the pan so that any
remaining feed will not become con
taminated with dirt and cause the
birds to lose their appetites.
PROPER FEED FOR PULLETS
Almost Impossible to Overfeed Young
FowlsIf Not Given Variety
They Will Not Grow.
It Is surprising tho quantity of food
thnt young pullets will consume. It
Is almost Impossible to overfeed them,
for, unlike the hen In lnylng condition,
they take on fat very slowly. If, how
ever, they are Improperly fed and do
not obtain n proper variety of food
they will not grow, either In size or
weight, and will bo very slow In com
ing to the laying point.

LOOSE MORALS IN RUSSIA
Marriage Vows Are Broken on Least
Provocation" and Severing of Bonds
Is Very Common.
Morals In Uusslnn society arc get
ting very loose, the sanctity of mar
rlngo Is being challenged by too great
a facility for obtaining divorce. Many
girls marry In haste to get their In
dependence, and look upon their first
matrimonial venture ns a step to bet
ter themselves In tho future, writes n
correspondent. It seems paradoxical,
but It Is nevertheless u fact that It
Ib far easier for a married woman than
for n spinster to find u husband.
The breaking off of an engagement
creates a scandal, but tho severing of
matrimonii bonds Is becoming quite
tho usual thing. The most Insignifi
cant misunderstanding causes husband
and wife to break their marriage vows
and go their different ways. Gossips
chatter about Impending divorces ns
much ns of budding engagements. In
Hussln a divorced Woman does not
lose n tltho of'her reputation, If no
outrageous scandal attaches to her di
vorce. Should she marry again, she
returns to society with her new hus
band nnd enjoys nil the prerogatives
of her new position. The victims of
this stnte of things are the unfortu

cr.lls "femlnalls," another form of over

used, tho managers persunded live
women to try It, nnd It was then easy
for the rest to don the femlnalls. In

employed, about three times ns ninny
as last year, and much of the work
they do was formerly dono by men.
